Amy Winehouse by Hedi Slimane
“She wishes to preserve her dignity, put up a bold front. But that’s not so easy with her chest ripped open like this and her heart exposed for all to surely see; her heart, which is on fire and dripping blood.”
—Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride
Actually, i don’t really care about the astro of this. It wasn’t a massive suprise.
I mean, i tweeted it briefly. Mars conjunct Venus in Leo – big heart, big voice, big hair, big talent…
Lilith-Midheaven in Aquarius AND a Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Sagg: could have been an official genius, could have conquered her demons to embody a darker, but functional Lilith figure.
Saturn-Pluto conjunct and sextile her Capricorn Moon: raw power.
Yes, Sun-Mercury in Virgo (brains!) square Neptune but not every square to Neptune needs to involve Neptunian substance abuse, let alone end up like this.
It’s sad but most of all i think it just reminds us all of the other drug tragedy peeps in our lives.
Trashed, wasted, gone too soon, so young.
We’ve nearly all had them, yes?
